Your very welcome. i find it all very interesting & that website has been a huge eye opener because we didn't have a very good Dr when Rickson had his first reaction 21/2 years ago when he was 10 mths old, so we just removed things from his diet & reintroduced them 1 at a time to find what it was that he had reacted to (it turned out to be half of the head of a freddo frog, his first & last chocolate for 12mths, until i started feeling guilty at easter) & by the time we changed Dr we had already sorted it out, although it took nearly 4 weeks to clear up with just the antihestamine & no cream, anyway the Dr didn't even mention that there was such a thing as allergy testing & now that i'm thinking about it again i'm realising that our diet doesn't change much & most of his reactions have been from traces in treat foods & it takes about 6 hours before his eczema shows & because the i metioned earlier was so much faster i have the thought stuck in my head what would happen if he got his hands on a whole peanut or peanut butter, so we will be taking him to see an allergy specialist in the next couple of weeks to see how bad or good his allergy is,something that should have been done a long time ago. so really i should be thanking you for getting me thinking, so thankyou very much!
who would have thought that ice cream, lip stick or suncream could have peanut in it.
also i feel so cheated now because the Dr told us that most children outgrow the allergy by 3 years but that website states that only 10% of peanut allergies resolve & 90% of sufferers have at least one of the other top 8 allergies. Rickson is also allergic to penicilin & an insect bite (we think mosquitoes).
Does Myranda have any other allergies yet?
& how was her birthday (i noticed her birthday on your other post) my twins will be one on the 29th march & i'm still trying to figure out what to do for it.
